STANDING ARMY OF U. S.  / Now that the   United   States  looks like war it might not be  uninteresting to see how prepared the United States is for  war.  The Army Act of 1916���������By  the Act of Congress of June 3,  1916, the army was increased  from a peace strength of approximately 100,000 to about  208,000; but the total increase  301,920, being made in five  equal increments beginning  June 30, 1916. Under this Act  the army of the U. S. shall consist of the regular army.the volunteer army, the officers reserve  corps, the enlisted reserve corps  the national guard while in the  service of the United States.and  such other land forces as are  nom or may hereafter be authorized by law.

The following bit of imaginative  writing appears in an American jour-:  nal.���������Away back in 1469, the King  of Norway was in need of cash and  pawned the Orkney and Shetland Islands to the then King of Scotland  for 60,000 florins. Kaiser Wilhelm  wants the islands for a naval base,  and is bargaining with Norway for  the equity of redemption. Maybe if  he buys them he will settle down  there after the war. Anyway, if  compound interest is to be paid on  the 60,000 florins that Norway raised  the price will run to about ������20,000,-  000.  When can it be said that a bed is  not a bed?

"For instance, one inch away lengthens the line six miles. You  have to speak one-third louder for the party listening to hear you  than if your lips wore close to the telephone. With your lips two  inches away from the telephone, the line is lengthened ten miles;  three inches, sixteen' miles;  four inches, eighteen miles."

I havo every reason  to bolieve that the text of tho docu-  mont will bo widely printed here very  shortly. I would again impress the  fact that both princials in this matter occupy very high positions.  I5o:i(en   by   l/Iungier  The document runs as follows: ���������  "Yes," said the German, "we are  beaten���������beaten by hunger! but not  by arms. Nobody in the world can  say we are beaten by force of arms.  \Ve have won where fighting is concerned. We are beaten down to  death only by hunger.    We starve.  "And England, England alone, has  done this against us! Therefore, wo  decree infinite hate and revenge to  England. Our great and only mistake was cur fleet. It was not large  enough. But we swear that in three  years it will be mightier than the  English Fleet has ever .been, or ever  can be. We swear this. Never, never again will England have the na-j  tions under her wings as she has'  them now! '  "England will then stand n -arly a-*  lone, and then���������! . ;  "Wo shall create a mighty combin-'  ation���������so strong that we are sure to j  annihilate   England.    It   is   for   this'.  work that we have so carefuliy preserved our fleet during the war.  "In three years we shall begin a-  gain���������to strike at England, and this  time we are certain to destroy her.  At this very moment, when peace is  on all lips, we remember England.  After some show of hypocritical diplomatic resistance wo shall concede  all that England demands. 'All was  strongly emphasised.)  Teaco: Then War in Three Years  "We will even sell and betray  Turkey and give Constantinople . to  Russia.  "We will sell and betray Austria,  and give Transylvania to Roumania.  "We will sell and betray Ferdinand of Bulgaria, and leave him to  str.nd alone against his enemies.  "France shall have Alsac. * .-d Lorraine back afain.  *'We will give Belgium even up fo  fifty milliards as compensation.  "Wo will even deliver up our Kaiser if they demand it.  "Then���������tlicn we shall have peace!  "But on that day when peace is  siraied we shall begin again fo create  our new (leet, and within three years  wo shall begin again.  "And then? Well, then wy shall  be a hundred times    stronger    than  now.  Fierce hatred could scarcely go further (ban this. And, remember; It i������  not tho furious raving of an unolhcial  and irrepressible Gorman.  Toctliis i need only add that Germany's appeal (.0 President Wilson to  intervene is absolutely an appeal of  desperation, *t veritable cry from Macedonia: "Como over; help us!"  It is becoming Increasingly difficult for the Gorman Government to  keep the masses at home under control, while at the same time strivin*-*"  to give the impression to the outside  world that all is going smoothily  within the frontiers.���������Orkney Herald,  January 10, 1917.
